⚽️ Stake: 6/10 units
The qualifying rounds in the Europa League give some clubs the opportunity to break completely new ground. For example, VfL Wolfsburg is allowed to play a competitive game on Albanian soil for the first time in the club’s history, although the joy of it is really limited.
On the one hand, this is due to the fact that the wolves gave up the qualification they believed to be certain for the group stage on the last matchday of the Bundesliga and now have to trot across the villages.
- “Normally you shouldn’t consciously send someone to a risk area. But that’s the case with a Europa League game in Albania. ” – Jörg Schmadtke
The second reason is that Albania is currently considered a risk area. VfL is therefore very reluctant to take this trip.
On Thursday, however, the focus will be on the sporting area. It would be a sensation if we didn’t report again on the wolves as part of our Europa League tips next week. Before the kick-off between Kukesi and Wolfsburg, the prediction of the best bookmakers is clearly in the direction of an away win.
However, it could be a game in which the underdog surpasses itself in by no means perfect conditions, while the spoiled professionals first have to adapt to the conditions in Albania. Nevertheless, between Kukesi and Wolfsburg there is probably no alternative to a tip for a clear victory for the Bundesliga club.

Kukesi – Statistics & current form
FK Kukesi is a club that has existed since 1930, but for many years the events for this club took place in the lowlands of Albanian football. In the meantime, Kukesi has become a fixture in the Albanian Superiore category and won the national championship for the first time in 2017. The club has been regularly represented in the European Cup since 2013.
Of course, Kukesi has never made it to qualify for a group stage, but the overall development is definitely positive. The season in Albania has not yet started again, but the home side does not have to go cold. As runner-up, Skender Gega’s team had to compete in the first qualifying round.
Kukesi was successful as an outsider against Sofia
The opponent was the team from Slavia Sofia at the end of August. In the 56th minute it was Patrick Friday who brought Kukesi 1-0 up with a penalty. Ten minutes before the end, the guests from Bulgaria draw, but Godberg Cooper stabbed as a joker and brought the Albanians 2-1 into the next round with his goal.
The personal information from the Albanian camp comes slowly. It looks like Skender Gega won’t have to cut back on staff on Thursday. Kukesi will be able to compete with the best line-up. This may mean that Nigerian Patrick Friday and Ghanaian Godberg Cooper will form an African double seat.
Probable formation of Kukesi:
➲ Xhika – Horic, Obanor, Kotobelli, Malikji – Telushi, Gavazaj, Musolli, Mustra – Friday, Cooper
➲ Coach: Gega

Wolfsburg – Statistics & current form
The season in the German upper house has not yet started. The current table of the Bundesliga can therefore not be used as a reference for the current form of Lower Saxony. However, there are other aspects that suggest that the wolves are in very good shape, because the test matches and the start in the DFB Cup were very successful.
Wolves with a winning streak
If you look at all the games that were played for VfL after the extremely short summer break, Oliver Glasner’s team recently celebrated five wins in a row. In addition, there were only two goals conceded in these five games. Against this background, it cannot be ruled out that between Kukesi and Wolfsburg a prediction for a zero victory for the Bundesliga club fits.
- “If our performance is right, we can advance one lap. We want to play European, we want to get into the group stage. ” – Oliver Glasner
Last weekend, however, the wolves had some difficulties starting in the DFB Cup against the regional division Union Fürstenwalde. The amateurs even took a 1-0 lead in Wolfsburg before Joao Victor turned the game around with a brace before the break. Yannick Gerhardt and Josuha Guilavogui screwed the result to an appropriate level.
The wolves’ hospital is slowly clearing up again. Coach Oliver Glasner has already announced that goalkeeper Koen Casteels will take the trip to Albania and will probably guard the gate again. This means that with William and Marin Pongracic only two players will not be available due to injuries.
Probable formation of Wolfsburg:
➲ Casteels – Paulo Otavio, Brooks, Guilavogui, Klaus – Arnold, Gerhardt – Joao Victor, Mehmedi, Steffen – Weghorst
➲ Coach: Glasner

The odds comparison of the betting base clearly confirms that VfL Wolfsburg is the favorite. After five wins in a row there is nothing to be shaken about anyway. But it will depend on VfL getting involved in this encounter and being fully involved. If the Germans manage to pull off a concentrated performance, then they will leave the field as winners.
However, Kukesi has already surprised with the victory in the first qualifying round against Slavia Sofia. At home in particular, we cannot rule out the possibility that the Albanians will surpass themselves. In the end, however, the quality of the wolves should prevail. That’s why we get stuck between Kukesi and Wolfsburg on a tip for an away win.
